Waihi Beach Orokawa Trig Walk


Sunday, 2 May 2021

Grade 4-5

Nearest Town: Waihi Beach

Registration Region: Waihi Beach

Duration: 4 -5 hours

Start Time: 9:00 am - Waihi Beach Water Reservoir carpark, top of Pacific Road, Waihi Beach

Cost: Donation

We will proceed up Waihi Stream track. After viewing some water falls, we scramble up a short but steep section of around 200m that takes us up to the Fire break track.  We then gradually climb up to a farm on a ridge where there is a stile to help us climb over the fence. We will cross the farm for a short distance and then go across another stile to take us out to the Orokawa Trig. Further on from the Trig we can take in the views over Orokawa Bay. We can return by way of another track that joins up to the Fire break track, which then links to the Orokawa Back track. We can follow this track back to the resevoir, or alternatively,  can return via Orokawa Bay and the Coastal track back to Waihi Beach.

Bring lunch and water.  Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots.  Be prepared for some steep, scambly areas.
